It's something that the user should not have done. The Subversion
client-side code tries to prevent this from happening, but obviously you can
directly manipulate the repository and make it happen.

Unfortunately, no. But cleaning the dump shouldn't be too hard in this
case. Find and replace svn::keywords with svn:keywords, and decrement the
Property-Content-Length and Content-Length values by 1 for each node where
you changed the property name.
